In a galaxy far, far away, the concept of a multiverse has been largely unexplored. However, that’s all set to change with the upcoming Ahsoka series on Disney Plus. According to recent reports, the Ahsoka series is set to introduce the concept of a multiverse to the Star Wars universe, spinning off a ‘What If?’ style series.
Buckle up, Star Wars fans, because we’re about to take a deep dive into the World Between Worlds.
Ahsoka and the World Between Worlds
The Ahsoka series, starring Rosario Dawson, is reportedly set to bring the Star Wars Multiverse into live-action reality (according to Giant Freakin Robot). The World Between Worlds, first introduced in the animated series Star Wars: Rebels, will feature prominently in the Ahsoka series. This concept allows for the exploration of different “what if” scenarios, revealing alternate realities and outcomes to our beloved characters.
In one such scenario, Ahsoka will see what would have happened if she, instead of Obi-Wan Kenobi, had to fight the fateful duel against Anakin on Mustafar. In another, she will see a reality in which she gave in to the Dark Side and served Darth Vader. These alternate realities will be revealed to Ahsoka as she once again ventures into the World Between Worlds.
Hayden Christensen’s Cameo and Future Series
The World Between Worlds will also facilitate Hayden Christensen’s cameo in the series as Anakin Skywalker. This multiverse concept will allow for the exploration of different realities, potentially leading to a spin-off series similar to Marvel’s What If…? series. Whether this series will be live-action or animated remains to be seen, but the possibilities are endless.
Star Wars and the Multiverse
The introduction of a live-action World Between Worlds in Ahsoka is a bold move for Star Wars. Traditionally, concepts like multiverses and time travel have been kept far away from the franchise’s live-action productions. However, this move may have been in the works for a while. Earlier this year, Marvel Comics’ Star Wars #30 hinted at a multiverse, and the non-canonical animated Disney+ series Star Wars: Visions has also explored alternate realities.
Final Thoughts on the Ahsoka series and the Multiverse coming to Star Wars
The Ahsoka series could potentially reel back fans still sore over losing the expanded universe by adapting Legends material. If everything in Legends and Visions takes place in different corners of the Star Wars multiverse, it could all be considered canon, just not to the prime timeline. As we eagerly await the release of Ahsoka, one thing is certain: the Star Wars universe is about to get a whole lot bigger.
